This is an all time favourite recipe of the whole family including my extended family.
It is quick and easy to make which is what I love about it and if I take it to a morning tea I always get asked for the recipe.
So without further ado here are the instructions to create this little number!!

INGREDIENTS
175g butter (I use 150g and add extra if mixture looks to dry at the end)
2/3 cup caster sugar
4 tablespoons cocoa
2 Tablespoons desiccated coconut
1 egg, lightly beaten
250g packet plain biscuits (I use whatever I have in cupboard ie Scotch fingers, Marie or Milk Arrowroot) broken into pieces.

I start with the biscuits in a snap lock bag. Pierce bag a few times with a fork just to let air escape.
I then fold a tea towel around bag and hit firmly with something like a meat mallet or rolling pin.
